  • Great beach easily accessible by bus or car. Plenty of dirt road to park. Full sunshine so put out those sunscreen behind the windshield! Shallow beach, low waves usually. Ideally suited for families with small kids. Playground present. Fun activities for older children and adults. Jet skis, kayaks, catamaran, etc. Diving school too. 2 bars and restaurants. And tucked between two good hotels. Lolo in the parking lot near the street so no reason to go anywhere except maybe the bank nearby to get cash.
  • One of my favorite beaches on the island. Soft sand, lots of palm trees, and calm shallow water. Great for kids as well. Lots of amenities right there. Food and drinks at Buccaneer Beach Bar and Green House. Chairs and umbrellas available, usually free with lunch. It's a hidden gem.
  • lots of room, plenty of beach bars and restaurants, the buccaneer and the green house are great, water activities are available
  • Kim cha is a beautiful beach
